(Knee)-Jerk of the Week: Tim Kaine
http://michellemalkin.com, By Doug Powers • November 29, 2016 11:35 AM
Yesterday a man described as an 18-year-old Somali refugee (Obama’s still trying to determine if he should be categorized as “widow” or “orphan”) injured many people at Ohio State by ramming them with a car and slashing others with a knife. The sound of a campus officer taking down the attacker with a gun led to early reports of an “active shooter” situation, but Hillary’s former running-mate Tim Kaine didn’t need to wait for any more details because his lefty instinct had kicked in:
Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said Monday he was saddened by the “senseless act of gun violence” at Ohio State University, even though the attacker used a butcher knife and a car.
Mr. Kaine, who ran on the 2016 Democratic ticket with presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was accused of pushing a gun-control agenda after his Twitter post blaming firearms for the siege.
Kaine wins the (Knee)-Jerk of the Week award for that.
The most dangerous place to be during any domestic attack is between a progressive and his anti-gun narrative.
Mr. Kaine later corrected himself, saying in a tweet, “Updated reports say attacker used a vehicle & knife. Horrifying & senseless.”
Why not call for an end to “vehicle & knife violence”? Kaine will certainly be among those who will never be able to determine a motive for yesterday’s attack.
